Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gurbax Singh Malhi, PC, MP (born October 12, 1949) is a Canadian politician. He is currently the Liberal Member of Parliament for Bramalea-Gore-Malton, riding which he has been representing in the Canadian House of Commons since 1993. In 2002, he became the recipient of the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal for his commitment and contributions to Canadian society. In 2003, he was appointed for life to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada. Malhi was first elected to the House of Commons in the federal election of 1993, defeating Progressive Conservative incumbent Harry Chadwick and Reformer Darlene Florence in the Bramalea-Gore-Malton riding. Malhi was also the first "turbaned Sikh" elected to parliament anywhere in the western world. Prior to 1993, Canadian law prohibited members of parliament from wearing headgear of any sort in the House of Commons. Malhi's insistence on wearing a turban caused the law to be changed shortly after the election.show more
